Optical Microscopy

Expert Optical Surface Analysis

Optical microscopy is one of the oldest forms of forensic investigation. From surface and failure analysis, to microstructure evaluation, to imaging solutions for publications, FAI has the tools to shed light on your most challenging issues.

Optical microscopy is usually the first step in any failure analysis project. It allows our analysts to see signs and causes of failure such as necking, fault lines, cracks, and more. Manufactured components can be mounted in epoxy and polished to view cross sections or film and coating thicknesses. FAI also has image stacking capabilities for a large depth of field. A combination of expert microscopists and some of the best imaging and microscopy equipment combine to bring you superior optical investigation services.
